DIY FALL HYDRANGEA WREATH IN 15 MINUTES
Do y’all remember my 15-minute gorgeous wreath from last fall?
And then how I used the same grapevine wreath base to do my spring succulent wreath in 10 minutes?
Well, my sister texted me last week and said, “Juls, can we (“we” meaning you), make this wreath for me, for less than $100?” (Go ahead, click the link for the inspiration image)
I said, “Uhhh, pretty sure I can… for like $99.” Well, WE think we are funny.
Of course, we immediately hopped on over to the local craft store (my sister lives down the street from MWA), purchased what we needed, and made the wreath in about 15 minutes… no joke!
So, here’s how YOU can create this lovely diy fall hydrangea wreath in just about 15 minutes (maybe less)!

What You’ll Need for a DIY Fall Hydrangea Wreath
You really only need a few items to create this luxurious look for your decor:
- Hydrangea stems, 3 of each of three colors (Amazon has LOTS to choose from. I would do anywhere from a 5″-7″ across hydrangea head)
- 18-inch grapevine wreath
- Ribbon of your choice, we used this sage-colored linen look with a bit of gold trim, but if you like the ribbon in the inspo photo, it’s called ‘crinkle’ ribbon (took us a while to figure THAT one out. 😉 )
- Wire cutters
- Hot glue gun and Gorilla glue sticks (they are the best!)
Easy enough, right?
Like us, you probably already have the last three items, and we even had the ribbon, too! So all we needed were the stems and grapevine wreath base!
How to Make a Fall Hydrangea Wreath in 15 Minutes
Seriously… this is just too easy!
- Cut the heads off your hydrangea leaving about 1.5 inches of ‘stem’ (see close up on second photo)
- (Pro-tip: Before using glue, add the hydrangea heads to the grapevine and then space them out accordingly. THEN go back and take them out, add glue, and place back in the appropriate spot. Remember, bare spots can be covered with leaves!) Take your first hydrangea and add hot glue to the stem and stick it in the grapevine wreath. I know it seems obvious, but take your next color and then color number three and add to the grapevine. Do this same sequence two more times.
- and 4. Seperate your leaves from the stems and add them to the grapevine wreath, underneath and between the hydrangea heads. See the finished product photos below for tips on placement.
Add the bow, and your are set for your fall door decor!
Where Can I Put a DIY Fall Hydrangea Wreath
Wreaths aren’t just for your outside door (thought that is where my sister put hers)! Here’s some more ideas of where you can place an autumn wreath:
- Inside your entryway door! Yes… a wreath inside the door is a great addition to your seasonal decor. Uhhh, I’m thinkin’ My Wee Abode needs that right now… I’ll be back in 15-minutes!
- Okay, I’m back. Wreaths are lovely on china cabinets. My friend Crissy from First Day of Home adds TWO fall wreaths to her dining room cabinets!
- Add a wreath to a large mirror! This look creates a 3-dimensional decor that can’t be beat!
- Kitchen cabinets… little mini wreaths hanging down kitchen cabinets are so pretty! (I know this is for Christmas, but you can really do this for any season… and I love me some Worthing Court!)

DIY Fall Hydrangea Wreath in 15 Minutes
Oh, I almost forgot… here’s the finished hydrangea wreath that my sister ended up getting for her birthday… from me! 😉 (Yes, she’s one of those zillions of people born in September!)
She immediately put it on her front door… outside. 😉 What do you think? Pretty close to the $100 wreath, right? This cost just about $50 (IF you get the items on sale).
My sister opted for this green ribbon I had in my stock-pile rather than the gold crinkle ribbon on the photo from Etsy. The sage color is definitely more my sister’s style anyways.
Let me know where you like to put your seasonal wreaths. Do you have a wreath in your home for the seasons? Do you even ever use a wreath? Will you now? Inquiring minds want to know! 😉 And no judging, I promise! 😉
AND, if you have some dried hydrangeas, you can use those, too! Take a look at how to make a wreath with dried hydrangeas at My Family Thyme!
That is beautiful! I love making up different wreaths for our front door for each season; though I do try to use the ones I made for 2 years in a row if the flowers/ribbons are still mostly intact and not faded by the sun.
Yes, my sister is not one to change things up too much… This wreath will be on her door for many autumn seasons! 🙂
Very oretty Julie, the prices of some of these wreathes are outrageous. Pretty colors abd love the ribbon.
They sure are crazy! Even $50 was a lot for me… but, it was exactly what she wanted! 😉
Woohoo!! I LOVE it and love seeing it every time I come home! Thank you, Sis! <3
I’m glad you like it… Hope it reminds you of me every time you see it! ;-P
Julie, that looks amazing!! I love that creative people can save a lot of money with DIY’s!! I keep a wreath, or basket or something on my front door all the time. It seems my house is bare if there isn’t something on the front door. I also usually have one above my fireplace during every season along with other seasonal decor. Keep up the beautiful, you’re an awesome blogger and I love following you.
Oh, thank you so much, Anita! You made my day! So glad you are part of the MWA fam! (And using a wreath above your mantel… Good one!)
Oh my gosh, it looks just like the inspiration photo, Julie! What a lucky sister you have! 😉 I love the ribbon you chose, too. It turned out so well, and I love how quick and easy it is to put together. Pinning!
Thanks, girl! You are always so kind and thoughtful with your comments. Hugs!
Great job! That is beautiful!
Thank you… Deeds is very happy with it!
Stunning absolutely stunning. One of my favorite flowers but I am not a wreath fan. I love all the ones you’ve demonstrated though.
You are an amazing ‘fan’… and I love ya, lady! Hugs!
Wow! Your sister must have been overjoyed with the wreath that you made her. Your version of the inspiration picture is fabulous and your sister is sure to enjoy this wreath for years to come.
Yes… she’s the type to use decor for many years, so I think this def makes the list! 😉 Hugs! (ONE WEEK!)
Julie, this is beautiful! You did an amazing job and it looks just like the one in the inspiration! Do you ship?? Lol I bet your sister loves it! Well done!!
Hehe… you could TOTALLY do this! 😉 Thanks for the love, Kim!
Your wreath looks great, too, indeed! I love that orange color. Never seen such color for hydrangea.
Thanks so much, Liz! It was super fun to create!
This is gorgeous…certainly represents the vibrance of the season. And you are right, anyone can do this…and with flowers on sale, do it reasonably. Fall Hugs, Sandi
EXACTLY, Sandra! So easy, and packs a punch! 😉
Love this Julie! I’m a sucker for anything hydrangeas!!
Thanks so much, Jennifer! They are a lovely flower, aren’t they?

Oh, thanks for much Carrie… it is very rich and deep in color, just right for my sister!
Your wreath is gorgeous, Julie! What a lovely gift for your sister. I’m thrilled to feature it this week at Celebrate Your Story! Link Party 🙂
Aw… thank you so much, Rebecca… I’m late to the link parties this week. I’ll go visit right now! Hugs!
What a pretty wreath! I absolutely love the colors you chose!
Thanks, Candace… it’s definitely a fave on the blog… and in my home! LOL!
I would love to make one of these! So pretty!
This wreath is very beautiful. I have been looking for flowers online, since we are in lockdown, and they come in various sizes. What width would you recommend?
Oh, thanks for the kinds words, Gina… I would choose a hydrangea head that measured anywhere from 5-7 inches across. I just updated the affliate link so you can see some on Amazon!
Thank you, Julie. The link is very helpful.
Love your wreath you made for your sister. Can we be sisters as my sister doesn’t do DIYs. I have dried hydrangeas from last year so I am going to put them in a wreath maybe get me a grapevine base and ribbon. Someone said they make a paint for dried flowers so am going to look into that so I can have more colors to choose from. Thanks for sharing and giving us ideas to go on for holidays and seasons.
Good morning, Fernie! Hehe… I would be your sister if we lived closer! 😉 I think a grapevine wreath is a perfect base to add your dried hydrangeas! I bet it will be gorgeous!
The colors are so rich and gorgeous Julie!! I’m sure your sister is thankful that she has a sister like you 🙂 Pinned!
Thank you, Cindy! Yes, she is asking for another one (she has double entry doors).
Beautiful, Julie! Hydrangeas are so versatile!
I love hydrangeas and they make the most beautiful wreaths! The colors you chose are perfect for Fall and the ribbon is like icing on the cake! I’m sure your sister is thrilled with this wreath! Blessings, Donna
What a lovely wreath. Congratulations, you are being featured on Thursday Favorite Things party. https://www.eclecticredbarn.com/2022/09/ian-and-thursday-favorite-things-party.html I hope you stop by.
Thank you so much, sweet friend! Hugs!
Julie, this is so gorgeous! The hydrangeas look so full, and the colors are beautiful. I’m featuring it today at TFT. 🙂
Thank you SO much, Pam! You made my day! (I did see the feature before I answered your comment. 😉 )
Julie, this is gorgeous. I love how you make such beautiful decorations for your home and have them not cost so much. You are so talented. Many blessings.
Thanks so much, Wendy! My sister loves it!
Love it! Wreaths are way overpriced. I probably couldn’t do the $50, but she will get a lot of use from it. I love green, so the ribbon looks great, too. Thanks for sharing!
I know… $50 is a bit much for me, too, but my sister uses it every season… so, she has gotten her money’s worth! 😉
